It looks like the Houston Texans and Andre Johnson have put aside all of their differences and are back on the same page, with the veteran and longest tenured Texan player reporting to training camp on Friday morning.
John McClain of the Houston Chronicle tweeted the following:
Johnson missed off the of Texans offseason camps, which were the first for new head coach Bill O’Brien, who the Texans signed away from being the HC at Penn State this offseason due to deciding to see if he still wanted to be apart of the only franchise he’s even been with. The Texans an in the midst of a rebuild after finishing with just two wins in 2013, losing their final 14 games.
As for this entire situation … I’m just glad to see it resolved before camp actually began. At times this offseason it looked like the Texans and Johnson would be parting ways, and at times it seemed like that was the best situation for both parties.
Today is a good day for the Texans.
Now with Johnson back in the mix, it makes the Texans a better offensive football team, as he is a needed player for the them to succeed in the AFC South this season. The Texans will have a new QB under center this season with veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick being named the started in late May after mini camp.
A future Hall of Famer, Johnson finished with 109 receptions for 1,407 yards in 2013. He totaled five touchdowns and averaged 12.9 yards per reception on a Texans team that used three different players at QB let season, and a team that finished an NFL worst 2-14 on the year.
For his career Johnson has 927 receptions for 12,661 yards and 61 touchdowns.
